Expert review

The Bankwest Breeze Mastercard offers a couple of ways to save on both new purchases and existing credit card balances with a 0% interest rate on purchases for 15 months and a relatively low balance transfer interest rate.

How to apply

You can apply for the Bankwest Breeze Mastercard online and complete the application in around 15 minutes. Before you get started, make sure you meet the eligibility requirements and have all your supporting documentation on hand to speed up the process.

Eligibility criteria

  • Residency. This card is only available to permanent Australian residents or citizens.
  • Eligible balance transfer. Balances cannot be transferred from existing Bankwest-branded credit cards. You can transfer from $500 up to 95% of your credit limit.

Card benefits

  • 0% purchase rate offer. If you're a new Bankwest Breeze Classic Mastercard customer, you can take advantage of an introductory purchase rate of 0% p.a. for the first 15 months. After the introductory period, the interest rate reverts to the standard purchase rate of 10.99% p.a. While there is no specified date when this offer will end, it is only available for a limited time. So you will need to apply during the promotional period if you want to take advantage of the 0% p.a. introductory interest rate. You will also still need to meet the card's repayment requirements during the introductory period.
  • Purchase security insurance. This complimentary extra protects your eligible personal purchases against loss, theft and accidental damage for up to three months. The maximum amount you can claim in a year is $125,000.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. This card charges a standard annual fee of $49.
  • Purchase rate. Outside of any promotions, this card charges a low ongoing purchase rate of 10.99% p.a.

    If I apply for a Bankwest Breeze MAstercard credit card, can I balance transfer debt from other credit cards that are in my partner’s name as well as my own?


    • Avatarfinder Customer Care

      Hi Jon,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Yes, you can however you need to have your partner as your additional card holder to process balance transfer with the card under your partner’s name. Please make sure that the total balance transfer amount should not exceed your Breeze card’s 95% credit limit/available balance including the balance transfer fee/s.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Hi Annie,

      Thank you for contacting Finder.

      The maximum balance transfer limit is 95% of the approved credit limit. For example, you have been approved for $5,000, you may use 95% of it which is $4,750 for Balance Transfer.

      I hope this helps.

      Please do not hesitate to reach out again to us if you have additional questions.

    Does Bankwest accept a balance transfer from St.George?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      March 22, 2019

      Hello Jellina,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Yes, you can transfer your existing balance from St.George to Bankwest. According to Bankwest credit card terms and conditions, only Australian issued non-Bankwest credit/store cards can be balanced transferred.

    Can I transfer from a personal loan to a Bankwest Breeze credit card with 26 months interest-free?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      March 20, 2019

      Hi Sandy,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      I’m afraid you can’t transfer a personal loan to Bankwest Breeze Mastercard Credit Card. It only allows you to transfer a balance from another non-Bankwest credit cards.

      If you want to find credit cards that allow you to transfer personal loan balance, please go to this page. On that page, you will see a table that allows you to conveniently compare cards that let you transfer a personal loan to a credit card. You can compare based on balance transfer rate, purchase rate, and fees, to name a few. Once you found the right one for you, click on the “Go to site” green button to learn more or initiate your application.

      Please make sure though to read the eligibility criteria, features and details of the card, as well as the relevant PDS/ T&Cs of the card before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

    Why does it say 0% interest on purchases for the first 13 months, then only 55 days interest-free? Which one is it?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      November 14, 2018

      Hello Tyler,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Please note that the Bankwest Breeze Mastercard offers new customers 0% p.a. interest on purchases for the first 13 months. The interest-free days does not only apply on purchases but it also applies to the overall balance of the credit card. You must pay the closing balance, including any cash advances and balances, to qualify for interest-free days.

      Find out how the 55 days interest-free works here. Also, please check how the 0% interest-free on purchases works here.

    I am an Australian citizen but have been living and working in New Zealand for the past year, can I still apply for an Australian credit card? Will my current overseas address and income details still be valid for an application?

      Hi Matthew,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Most credit card issuers would require their applicants to be Australian resident or citizen with a valid physical address in Australia. You’d be best to directly contact the bank first to confirm your eligibility before you apply for a credit card.

    Hi what does the 2% transfer fee on balance transfers mean?


    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      February 1, 2016

      Hi Sally,

      Good afternoon and thanks for your question.
      The 2% fee is charged by the credit card issuer when transferring a balance from one account to another.

    If I get a cash advance on my BankWest card will the cash advance (with the higher interest rate) be paid before the previous purchases are paid.

    Kind Regards,

      Hi Kerry, thanks for your inquiry!

      That is correct, the repayments to a credit card are allocated to the portion of debt which has highest rate of interest first then to the second highest rate of interest and so forth.

    Hi my wife and I currently have a Westpac MasterCard that is quite high and attracting a huge amount of interest. The card is in her name, can I still do the balance transfer if I get your card under my name?

      Hi Jeff.

      Please have a look at the table on this page. It has information on the institutions that allow you to transfer between two cards in different names under a balance transfer promotion.

      Thanks for your question.
